For accountants and CPAs

With financial fraud on the rise, document destruction laws are strict. An accounting professional's document accountability and ethical conduct must be handled properly to maintain the privacy of his or her clients.

Fireproof ensures compliance with legal requirements and regulations, such as:

  • The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 (FACTA) has a provision regarding the "proper disposal of consumer information" and requires the "shredding... of papers containing consumer information" so that personal information cannot be read or reconstructed.
  • Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX) says that paper and electronic records must be kept for five years, and public companies must disclose and evaluate their internal controls. This means that an internal document retention and destruction policy is crucial.
  • Financial Modernization Act of 1999 / Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLB) calls for disposal by shredding of files and records that contain clients' non-public information (NPI) of a financial nature.
